Driving in San Francisco - help!!!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, we are driving into SF from Lake Tahoe tomorrow.

We're staying just off Lombard St and googlemaps has us going along the Bayshore Highway and up Van Ness ave. I'm so scared of driving in the city for the first time and I'm especially worried about the big hills. Unfortunately for me, getting the car to Lombard St is compulsory.

So I was wondering if anyone out there has any advice for driving in the city, things to watch out for or laws I might not know about?

Also, does anyone out there know the city well and know if our route is pretty straight forward? Would another route be easier?

Thanks so much...
